The first World Textile Merchandising Conference was held in Keqiao Shaoxing, China, on September 20th and 21st and was the gathering of the major players to discuss about the future development of textile technology, dynamic pattern of global fashion industry and upgrading of China’s Textile Industry.
During the conference Simone Rancan, SANTEX RIMAR GROUP CEO, gave a speech about digitalization across the value chain, sustainability and circular economy.
Industry 4.0 represents a shift of the industrial production: machinery no longer simply processes the product, but the product communicates with the machinery to tell it exactly what to do. Decentralized intelligence helps creating the independent process management in an entirely new way of approaching the manufacturing and production process.
To become circular, the fashion industry must reinvent itself in how to design, what materials to use, how to dye, how to weave, cut and sew, ship, sell, own, use and dispose fashion. SANTEX RIMAR GROUP develops machines aligned with sustainability and circular economy principles: SPEROTTO RIMAR NOVA and PLANA to save water and chemicals, SANTEX SANTASHRINK to save energy and SOLWA DRYWA, a green sludge dryer for industrial waste.
During the convention Industry 4.0. The time is now organized in Turin by IBM Italy, Santex Rimar Group CEO, Stefano Gallucci was invited as keynote speaker to present his view of the revolution of the artificial intelligence with regards to the textile industry.
“Santex Rimar Group machines are learning how to improve production processes using big data: we are offering cognitive systems that enable our customers to achieve and maintain quality production standards and implement predictive maintenance. Our new technologies are understanding the processes avoiding waste of energy as well as materials and quality errors” said Stefano Gallucci, CEO of SANTEX RIMAR GROUP – “Our customers produce textiles and technical textiles used in many different fields: from mobile microphones to haute-couture, from curtains to military garments, including aerospace and automotive components. Textile companies are already asking for state-of-the-art technology and we are looking forward to providing the best solutions.
Santex Rimar Group machines will be able to suggest how to produce high quality fabrics and solve problems autonomously, assuring 100% traceability of a green and eco-friendly production”.
“We can no longer face the market just as a mechanical company, we have to be part of the new digital era” concluded Stefano Gallucci “Santex Rimar Group machines must help solve the challenges of such a competitive fast-paced textile industry: for this reason, we are studying big data, clouds and deep learning tools”.
